eKomi StarInsights reports is an ongoing series on market research data for a specific industry that highlights top companies with a sizable number of favourable customer ratings and reviews. And, today’s article reviews the best gas service station in Cape Town CBD.
Since the invention of gas-powered vehicles, gas stations have been commonplace. Often referred to as a petrol station, filling station, or service station, the primary aim is to sell fuel and engine lubricants for motor vehicles. The industry has a very competitive market, with each gas station striving to outdo the other in service. Some have gone out of their way to provide extra services, like convenience stores, which may sell confections, beverages, tobacco products, etc.
Understanding Market Size
According to the South African Petroleum Retailers Association (SAPRA), gas and service stations significantly impact the South African economy. Comparatively, gas stations have shown to be a recession-resistant industry, generating good profits even in periods of weak economic expansion and rand instability. With a market share of more than 20%, SA is the continent’s most prominent fuel consumer, with a combined yearly turnover of over a 200billion.
While there are around 5000 service stations in the country; only six businesses dominate the market, these are Engen, Shell, BP, Sasol, Total, and Caltex. As a result, many businesses fall under franchises of these big names, with a few independent ones.
eKomi’s Review of the Best Gas Station
Determining the right filling station to refill your vehicles can be tough due to the large number of stations and services. Therefore, we are ranking gas stations today to help owners improve their online reputation rather than focusing on the market leaders.
Furthermore, in a bid to survive in this industry, most stations across the country have diversified services to gain a bigger chunk of consumers. Others have expanded their principal businesses to convenience stores, offering fuel advice and selling propane or butane. On the other hand, certain establishments, such as classic convenience stores, supermarkets, and discount and warehouse clubs, have installed petrol pumps on the premises. Here are the top-rated and top-reviewed Gas stations in Cape-Town Metro District.
